Same problem exists with MacAllyHelper
Authored by: tonyboy on Nov 06, '04 05:06:32PM
I'm really glad to see this solution here.

The same problem exists with MacAlly's keyboards with multimedia keys (e.g.: the NetKey) the their "MacAllyHelper" driver.

I had come to much the same diagnosis and solution as above, and created the following AppleScript:

	do shell script "killall MacallyHelper"
	open application "MacallyHelper"
end try
The problem is, I hadn't found a way to run this automatically at startup, so when either I or my roommate would switch into our accounts, we'd have to manually run the script (placed in our docks for convenience).

The WinSwitch solution is interesting, but I prefer to use Apple's own FUS mechanisms -- especially if WinSwitch needs to be activated for each user account. It just seems kind of hacky...

Is there any way to change an application like MacAllyHelper into a more compatible form, like a kernel extention just by moving it to a different location and/or changing it's package information?
